Different kinds of NoSQL Databases in the age of Big data

The below list gives you complete list of NoSQL databases currently available in the market.

NoSQL Databases
NoSQL Databases
Sorted Order Column Oriented Stores:
Google's Bigtable espouses a model where data in stored in a column-oriented way. This contrasts with the row-oriented format in RDBMS. The column-oriented storage allows data to be stored effectively. It avoids consuming space when storing nulls by simply not storing a column when a value doesn't exist for that column. Each unit of data can be thought of as a set of key/value pairs, where the unit itself is identified with the help of a primary identifier, often referred to as the primary key. Bigtable and its clones tend to call this primary key the row-key. 

Example:
The name column-family bucket stores the following values:
    For row-key: 1
    first_name: John
    last_name: Doe
    For row-key: 2
    first_name: Jane
The location column-family stores the following:
    For row-key: 1
    zip_code: 10001
    For row-key: 2
    zip_code: 94303
The profile column-family has values only for the data point with row-key 1 so it stores only the following:
    For row-key: 1
    gender: male

Key/Value Pair Stores:
HashMap or an associative array is the simplest data structure that can hold a set of key/value pairs. Such data structures are extremely popular because they provide a very efficient, big O(1) average algorithm running time for accessing data. 
The key of a key/value pair is a unique value in the set and can be easily looked up to access the data.
Key/value pairs are of varied types: some keep the data in memory and some provide the capability to persist the data to disk. Key/value pairs can be distributed and held in a cluster of nodes.
Oracle's Berkeley DB. Berkeley DB is a pure storage engine where both key and value are an array of bytes. The core storage engine of Berkeley DB doesn't attach meaning to the key or the value. It takes byte array pairs in and returns the same back to the calling client. 
Berkeley DB allows data to be cached in memory and flushed to disk as it grows. There is also a notion of indexing the keys for faster lookup and access.

Redis
Cassandra

Document Databases:
Document databases are not document management systems. More often than not, developers starting out with NoSQL confuse document databases with document and content management systems. The word document in document databases connotes loosely structured sets of key/ value pairs in documents, typically JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), and not documents or spreadsheets (though these could be stored too).

Document databases treat a document as a whole and avoid splitting a document into its constituent name/value pairs. At a collection level, this allows for putting together a diverse set of documents into a single collection. Document databases allow indexing of documents on the basis of not only its primary identifier but also its properties. 

A few different open-source document databases are available today but the most prominent among the available options are MongoDB and CouchDB.

Databases under this category:
MongoDB
CouchDB

Graph Database:
Graph databases and XML data stores could also qualify as NoSQL databases

Databases under this category:
Neo4j
FlockDB

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.
